An event every week that begins at 8:30 am on Friday, repeating until March 30, 2023
Where do we find the Mass in the Bible? What is the relationship between the two? In ten beautifully produced lessons, Parousia: The Bible and the Mass answers these questions and more.
In the latest video Bible study from the St. Paul Center, discover why the liturgy is a major theme that runs through the entire Bible, from Genesis to the Book of Revelation. We will not only look to the Law, the Prophets, and life and teachings of Jesus, we’ll also lean on the Doctors of the Church to enhance our understanding of the Mass. We’ll see how the New Testament is concealed in the Old, the Old is revealed in the New, and why both point directly to the Mass, the sign of the New Covenant.
Join host Scott Hahn to uncover how and why all of God’s action, in creation and redemption, is ordered to the Mass.
Supplemental readings come from Sacred Scripture, The Catechism of the Catholic Church, and four of Scott Hahn’s books on which the study is based: The Lamb’s Supper, Consuming the Word, The Fourth Cup, and Letter and Spirit: From Written Text to Living Word in the Liturgy.
Stephen Ray was raised in a devout, loving, Baptist family. Always a zealous instructor of Sacred Scripture, he nearly fell off his chair when a close friend, an Evangelical pastor, converted to Catholicism.
Steve and his wife Janet began a personal pilgrimage that would radically change their lives. After serious study and much prayer, the Rays became convinced that the Roman Catholic Church was the Church founded by Christ almost 2000 years ago. They also realized that Catholicism faithfully and fully continued the Apostolic teaching as understood by the Fathers, the Councils and gloriously preserved through the See of Peter.
